Re: How did you get into anime?

Oooh! It was Sakura Card Captor which caught me, but after watching Pokemon and Dragon Ball I just knew anime was my thing! Of course I didn't knew it was anime until I was older, but when I was little all I knew was I liked 'the pretty drawn ones'. the only normal cartoon that I actually liked was Ginger. Arnold, Rocket POwer and all that were good, but I never liked them because of the drawings.

Re: How did you get into anime?

oooh....Digimon and Sakura Card Captors;pUsed to wacth so much when I was a child, I was ADDICTED!!!! Even though I didn't know it was anime back then, due to my curiosity, two years ago i remembered card captor due to me and my friend playing a digimon vs. battle game (went searching in the forgotten play station 1 games), so when i went on youtube to search for card captor , an anime called Tsubasa Chronicles popped up. I used to think cartoons was for children.....i was a real steriotype.....and yet i clicked on the video;p When I saw the Tsubasa op, Sakura and Syaoran were all grown up, and episode one just happened to be right there. Once again, I'm a very curious person and someday that will be the death of me, so I clicked on episode one, and it was like magic;p So awesome, just had to have more!!!! So Tsubasa led to the Prince of Tennis, which led to D. Gray Man, which led to many others and currently to Katekyo Hitman Reborn;p Sugoine, huh?

Re: How did you get into anime?

I got into anime because of Toonami.

I use to watch DragonBallz all the time.
As well as Outlaw Star and the first animes that were shown on that program.

Re: How did you get into anime?

I was always (and still am) an animation nut so anime was just a natural progression for me. To start with, I didn't really have much idea where to start so I randomly bought the Oh My Goddess! OVAs on VHS (ahhh, VHS- £12.99 for half an our, dub only- those were the [rubbish] days! Hurrah for DVD boxsets!) and some other stuff- Gunsmith Cats, Dragon Half, Tenchi Muyo, Catgirl Nuku Nuku etc. I never had cable so I wasn't able to see much on TV, although I later found out that 2 of my very favourite kids shows- Sherlock Hound and Mysterious Cities of Gold, were anime.

Re: How did you get into anime?

I actually got into manga first when my friend at summer camp introduced me to Fruits Basket. I started watching the anime version soon after and got hooked to both manga and anime

Re: How did you get into anime?

I grew up in Thailand, so I was a mad pokemon fan when I was little. But really, I started actually watching anime after I stumbled across Naruto (as so many others have), haha! I came across a Sasuke/Sakura shipping video on youtube and it hooked me immediately. Eventually, this led to anime like InuYasha and Rurouni Kenshin...

Re: How did you get into anime?

I don't like to watch anime too much. But my friend said me to watch a new series named as Naruto Shippuden . It was such a great show. It was quite good experience to see this anime series. I am also waiting for the Avatar the last airbender season 4 premiere. Hope it airs soon.

Re: How did you get into anime?

I had always liked anything from Studio Ghibli growing up, but then I did an anime course as a part of my film degree and became addicted

Re: How did you get into anime?

What caught and hooked me to anime was Adult Swim. I think it hilarious that that kind of programming occurs on late-night on Cartoon Network, which has an entirely child viewer-base. Now that's just awesome decision-making. Anyway, the very first anime that I ever saw was probably InuYasha. I loved it immensely and immediately searched for more.

Re: How did you get into anime?

I watched loads of it when I was younger, like Kiki's Delivery Service and other wonderfully enchanting animes, and then recently I got hooked on it as a teenager last year. Since March 2009 I've been watching Asian dramas. Last year I watched the Death Note live-action movie, and this past November I just decided to watch the anime and it was awesome! I've always had a fondness for anime though; it's great.

Re: How did you get into anime?

It was my boyfriend at the time, now my husband, who introduced me to anime. He showed me Haibane Renmei, which is still one of my favorites. Spirited Away and My Neighbor Totoro were some of my first Miyazaki films.

Now I'd say that Miyazaki's films are my favorites, including Ponyo, Castle in the Sky, Howl's Moving Castle, and Kiki's Delivery Service. I also enjoyed other Studio Ghibli films like Whispers of the Heart and Only Yesterday.

Re: How did you get into anime?

I had to read a Graphic novel for English so I chose the first book of Bleach. Fell in love with it of course. After that I started to read about 2 a day. It was so hard to do my report because I was constantly changing books, having finished the first one. :P unfortunatly I didnt get very far. My school library doesnt have many. So I started watching the anime.

Re: How did you get into anime?

The first anime I ever watched was Pokemon and I became addicted. I still am. So, Pokemon started it for me. But it was around 1999/2000 when I started to get into more anime. I began watching Toonami on Cartoon network and that is when I got into other anime like Dragon Ball Z, Sailor Moon and Tenchi Muyo! After that I started watching as much anime as I could. Too bad Toonami is gone. I wish it were still around because no other channel plays Sailor Moon, the old DBZ, or Tenchi Muyo! anymore.

Re: How did you get into anime?

The earliest anime I can remember watching regularly and knowing it was anime was Sailor Moon. What got me into Anime was the Robotech dub and, later on, the old Dragonball Z dub (The fact that they both aired alongside Sailor Moon during Classic Toonami was just a perk). I also watched Pokemon whenever I could in the mornings; I think it was those four together that really got me into Anime.
